Maybe one option would be to have some kind of system where only a 
certain percentage of the contribution can be dedicated to a certain bug 
or bugs, with the rest going into a general pool.

The amount could vary based on how many votes the bug has (the more 
votes, the higher the percentage of the contribution that can be 
dedicated to it), up to some maximum (I was thinking 50%)?
